An implantable cardiac system has a master pacing unit and a remote satellite pacing unit. The master pacing unit is electrically coupled to a right side of a patient's heart via a lead assembly. The satellite pacing unit is a leadless device mounted on the left side of the patient's heart and is wi ...
